Eleganza Real Bride: Samantha


How would you describe your Eleganza Experience?

My experience with Eleganza was amazing, I arrived from the Lake District with my mum and sister, we were greeted with a glass of fizz and a huge smile. We were taken into the most dreamy bridal suite you can ever imagine, with all the extra details of my name hung on a little tree with our wedding date. From the minute I entered Eleganza I felt so special and was 100% sure I would be walking away saying Yes to my dream dress, and that I did!


Would you like to share with us your proposal moment, favourite part of planning your wedding or what you have planned for your honeymoon?

My proposal took me by a huge surprise, what I thought would be a romantic weekend away ended up being in lockdown on my husbands birthday eating birthday cake, I wouldn’t of changed any part of it for the world. He took me completely off guard which made this even more special, especially with the circumstances of being locked down due to Covid19.

Everything about planning my wedding I loved, I couldn’t of done this without the help from my  amazing mum, sister and 5 bridesmaids. Planning the whole wedding then seening it all come together on my wedding day is a day I’ll never forget.

After a busy year with our wedding and friends weddings we decided to have a mini moon with our children in dubai, enjoying family time and sunshine. We hope to go to the Maldives later on this year just the two of us.



Tell us more about your Martina Liana gown!

My dress, it was everything I dreamed of and exactly what I thought I would pick, Fit and flare, lace, beads, sparkle and a nude undertone. A dress that made me feel a million dollars.


What was your inspiration for your wedding? Did you follow a specific theme or colour palette?

My wedding theme compromised of white florals, touches of silver and gold with a traditional overall look and feel. whilst also wanting it to look elegant and modern.
Our wedding attire was made up of bridesmaids in long champagne dresses & the groomsmen in black tie.


Tell us more about your Big Day!

It really was the best day of our lives, we got married on the 19th June 2022 at Merrydale Manor, knutsford. It was everything and more we both wanted, from the minute we traveled to knutsford to the minute we arrived home it was Perfect. All we wanted was our family and friends to enjoy the day and have the best time, and this is exactly what we did. Merrydale and all my suppliers went above and beyond to style the venue exactly how I wanted. It really was my dream come true.

Adam our photographer ran round after all us girls and my mum and made our morning go exactly to plan. He was a life saver, anything we needed he had it covered.

When people say, take everything in on the day, it goes fast! It really does, it was the best day of our lives and I wish we could do it all again!



What was the most memorable moment?

The moment I walked down the aisle with my dad to greet my future hubby.
